The rhetoric of national dissent in Thomas Bernhard, Peter Handke, and Elfriede Jelinek by Matthias Konzett( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Matthias Konzett examines three writers, Peter Handke, Elfriede Jelinek, and the late Thomas Bernhard who have dominated the Austrian - and to some extent even the German - literary scene during the past three decades. All the three have written numerous successful novels and plays, and rank presently among the most performed and discussed authors on the German stage. Handke, Bernhard, and Jelinek are rarely seen as fully politically motivated authors, perhaps because their sophisticated aesthetics has invited discussions of form and has resulted in critical neglect of their complex stances on such public issues as nationhood, critical memory, and cultural identity, issues that are of great importance in their works ... Konzett focuses on the new literary strategies with which the three authors attempt to instill in their readers a critical self-awareness of nation and cultural identity."--Jacket
A companion to the works of Thomas Bernhard( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the death of Thomas Bernhard in 1989, the literary reputation of this complex and unique writer has risen to the point that he is now regarded as a major European figure. Bernhard emerged in the 1960s as one of Austria's major writers, challenging the popularity of such established writers as Heinrich Böll and Günter Grass on the German literary scene. His idiosyncratic prose consists of a tragic-comic blend of themes such as suicide, madness, and isolation combined with highly satirical and histrionic invectives against culture, tradition, and society. As a skillful impresario of public scandals by means of verbal assaults upon Austrian elite culture, Bernhard also earned himself the epithet of Übertreibungskünstler (artist of exaggeration). In this art of cultural and political provocation Bernhard remains unmatched to the present day. This volume of essays provides contributions by well-known critics that examine the most salient aspects of Bernhard's work, offering insights into literary strategies and public themes that made Bernhard one of Europe's masters of modern prose and drama. Essays examine Bernhard's complex artistic sensibility, his impact on Austria's critical memory, his relation to the legacy of Austrian Jewish culture, his representative value as Austria's prime literary export, and his cosmopolitanism and its significance for the rapidly changing multicultural landscape of Europe. Matthias Konzett is Associate Professor of German at Yale University. He is the author of The Rhetoric of National Dissent in Thomas Bernhard, Peter Handke, and Elfriede Jelinek (Camden House, 2000)

Hermann Broch, visionary in exile : the 2001 Yale Symposium by Paul Michael Lützeler( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Austrian novelist Hermann Broch ranks with Kafka and Musil among the three greatest 20th-century Austrian novelists and belongs to the century's most gifted novelists in German from whatever country. He established his reputation with 'The Sleepwalkers', a trilogy of political and philosophical novels. His best-known work is 'The Death of Virgil', a long, challenging work in a lyrical, exuberant, and sometimes nearly incomprehensible style, a kind of cerebral stream-of-consciousness of the dying Virgil. Broch also wrote extensively about modern art and architecture, Hofmannsthal, and mass psychology. He has a special connection to Yale, as he lived the last years of his life there after having escaped Austria in 1938. The participants in the Yale Symposium of April 2001 are among the world's most prominent Broch scholars. Fourteen of their presentations have been extensively revised for this volume, which focuses on Broch as critic and as novelist and dramatist. Topics include Broch's views on kitsch and art, and on drama; his cultural criticism; his cooperation with Borgese and Arendt; his theory of mass psychology; history in his works, Ernst Kretschmer's influence on him; 'Virgil' and Celan's 'Atemwende'; Jean Starr Untermeyer's translation of 'Virgil'; guilt and the fall in 'Those without Guilt'; and Broch reception in Japan. PAUL MICHAEL LüTZELER is Distinguished University Professor of German at Washington University St. Louis and editor of Broch's collected works. MATTHIAS KONZETT is associate professor of German at Yale; WILLY RIEMER is associate professor of German at the University of Delaware, and CHRISTA SAMMONS is curator of the German collections of the Beinecke Library at Yale
